The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare
“Our founders (…) divided us into five groups, factions, to keep the peace.The smart ones, the ones who value knowledge and logic are in Erudite. They know everything.Amity farm the land. They’re all about kindness and harmony, always happy.Candor value honesty and order. They tell the truth even when you wish they wouldn’t.And then there’s Dauntless. They’re our protectors, our soldiers, our police. I always thought they were amazing. Brave, fearless and free. Some people think Dauntless are crazy, which they kind of are.My faction is Abnegation. The other all call us “stiffs”. We lead a simple life, selfless, dedicated to helping others. We even feed the factionless, the ones who don’t fit in anywhere. Because we’re public servants we’re trusted to run the government.”
"Tobias," I say. "It’s me" I step forward and wrap my arms around him. His body is stiff. His heart beats faster. I can feel it against my cheek. A thud against my cheek. A thud as the gun hits the floor. "Tris," he says, and it’s him again.
His arm wraps around me and he lifts me up, holding me against him, his hands clutching at my back…He sets me down and stares at me, his fingers brushing over my forehead, my eyebrows, my cheeks, my lips…I lean against him, and he supports me. “How did you do it?” I say. “I don’t know,” he says. “I j u s t h e a r d y o u r v o i c e.”
